Josh Piven has been chased by knife-wielding motorcycle bandits (he escaped); been stranded on a chairlift during a howling blizzard (he was rescued); and torn both his rotator cuffs (he had surgery). He lives in a state of paranoia.

David Borgenicht is the founder of Quirk Books (www.quirkbooks.com). He has been surrounded by alligators, encountered bears, mountain lions, and more, and has lived to tell the tale. He currently lives in Philadelphia, but his go bag is stocked and ready.
